Carol Vice hosted our meeting at Valentino’s in Crawfordsville. We enjoyed our lunch and fellowship before the meeting. There were 11 members present. President Judy McBride welcomed everyone to our meeting. Sandy Lightle read several inspirational messages. Pledges were led by Claudine Whalen.

We did not have any birthdays or anniversaries this month. Treasurer Betty Jeffers gave her financial report. Lou Rosen made a motion to have a card shower at our next meeting. McBride reminded us to make sure we get busy on building our birdhouses. We had several pop tabs turned in for the Ronald McDonald House. Spring Tea was attended by Minnie Howard, Betty Jeffers, Eileen Matricia and Rita Kirkpatrick, and a report on the tea was given by Jeffers and Howard. Under new business a report on the spring council meeting was given by McBride and Vice. Cultural arts crafts are due at the 4-H Building between 4-5:30 p.m. Monday. They consist of quilts, needlework, knitting/crochet and crafts. If you have any craft or birdhouse you wish to enter and are unable to get them to the 4-H building you can drop them off at the home of Lightle and she will take the crafts to the 4-H building for you. If you have any questions concerning the craft delivery give her a call. Achievement Night is Tuesday at the 4-H Building. The doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the meal is at 6 p.m. The theme for this year is Homemaking is NOT for Sissies! The speaker for Achievement Night will be Sara Jane Coffman who writes numerous magazine articles, weekly humor column in the “Lafayette Leader” and is the author of “The Misadventures of a Single Woman” and “There’s No Such Thing as a Comfortable Bra.” She has presented programs for seniors, women’s groups, church groups, a cruise line, book stores and coffee shops. Her humor is described as a cross between Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore. State Conference is June 3-5. It was discussed to do a puzzle for the home and family conference and that will be discussed more next month. Howard gave the health and safety tip on “Walking Prescriptions” and how important walking is to our health.
